it was ok
Read from December 13 to 15, 2011

The pace of this book seemed totally off to me. The amnesia thing went on for sooo long and then it took 2 sentences to go away. There weren't any new and exciting creatures, just ones that were new to Percy because he had no memory. It just wasn't great -- it felt like the same story as book 1, just from a different point of view (which it wasn't, but the writing felt that way). At least book 1 had cool creatures/powers/gadgets. The best thing about this book is the differences between the Greek and Roman way of life, and that wasn't emphasized very much because Percy couldn't remember that he was a Greek. It all went bad when the author committed to amnesia for the main character. Lame.
